Multi-monitor is supported on most Intel® 815 chipset family based systems using PCI video cards to support additional monitors. With the latest graphics drivers for the Intel® 815 chipset series, the integrated video can be either the primary or the secondary display adapter.
System Requirements for Multi-monitor:
- Integrated Intel® 815 graphics or add on AGP graphics adapter
- PCI video card(s) that support multi-monitor
- Two or more monitors
- Windows* 98 or later
- Intel® 815 chipset series based motherboard that supports multi-monitor
- The latest graphics drivers for the Intel® 815 chipset series
To use multi-monitor with the Intel® 815 chipset series and Windows 98:
- Install the latest graphics drivers for the Intel® 815 chipset or if an AGP graphics card is installed make sure the latest drivers for it are installed.
- Power off the computer and install the PCI video card. Note: Opening the system case may void the warranty on some systems. Check with the system manufacturer before opening the system case.
- Attach the second monitor to the PCI video card.
- Power on the computer and install the drivers for the PCI video card. Check with the video card manufacturer for instructions on installing the drivers for the PCI video card.
- Restart the computer.
- Go into Start &» Settings &» Control Panel &» Display &» Settings and click on the picture of the second monitor. Click on the Yes button to enable the second monitor.
- Click the Apply button. The secondary monitor should now be enabled.
Note: To reverse the primary and secondary display adapters, enter the BIOS setup and look for a setting called "Init display first" or something similar. Set this to "PCI" if the PCI video should be the primary display adapter. Set it to "AGP" or "Onboard" if the integrated video should be the primary display.
